This was the book selected to be the first book for our class… And the discussions that led the reading of this book were nothing short of invigorating..

Reading such a huge selection of thoughts of one of the most dynamic centuries that we have witnessed, it was no doubt a heated debate..

Starting from the roots of the church being the dominant force to Darwin, and “Religion is the opium of people” we finally came to the topic of the book, and discussed how there was in evolution of the thoughts itself in the book… from a very simple idea of “returning to the true forms ” like the greeks had been able to .. to actually having a program about how to go around accomplishing it… The book is a must read to understanding the architectural development of the 20th Century.
